MEDIA RELEASE

 

SKINSTAD MADE SPRINGBOK CAPTAIN

STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK, MP
UDM SPOKESPERSON FOR SPORT AND RECREATION

The UDM shares the shock of all South Africans at the surprise announcement of a change in captaincy for the Springboks. It must be remembered that Andre Vos has done a good job, given the circumstances, under two different coaches.

We, as the rest of South Africa, wait in anticipation for Coach Viljoen's next surprise. In the meanwhile we can only hope that Vos was not the victim of a failed game plan of the coach, and that the preparation for the next World Cup is the foremost consideration in these decisions.
